Today Glasgow's Prestwick Airport was used by US forces to land planes believed to be carrying bunker buster bombs, leading to Defence Secretary Margaret Beckett complaining to Washington. This could leave the US in trouble.
Residents and politicians in Ayrshire have voiced anger after the US used Prestwick Airport as a stopover while transporting bombs to Israel.

Community councils in the town demanded answers and said they intend to write to the Foreign Office and US Government expressing their concerns.

Community chairperson Archie Monkhouse said: "We don't want aircraft and armoury flying in built-up areas."

I think that it is wrong that the US has just landed without a great deal of notice

Kind of odd given that the US has a whole bunch of military airbases they could have used in the UK. Would have seemed more sensible if they wanted to avoid publicity.
